After all the oil has been removed into a smaller bowl. This Sarawak Laksa is not that spicy and has a good enough strength of the signature herb taste in the Sarawak laksa. Won't buy again due to the amount of oil that needs to be removed but the taste is acceptable.
So I ordered mee sua chicken at MYR 10.90 nett. The mee sua and mushroom is a bit on the salty side. The soup doesn't have any wine in it and the chicken drumstick is a bit on the tough side. Overall, it is ok.
Portuguese Ikan Pari & Sotong (RM 12.80) I am loving the kick of umphhh and spiciness of the dish itself. Though the portion of the ikan pari is not much but it is good enough for one. I am loving the taste of it with the spicy squid that accompany with it.
Aglio -Olio Pork Belly (RM 33) Divinely delicious and double thumbs up! The Aglio Olio which is served together with the crackling delicious pork belly is a must to have here. The aglio olio is perfectly cooked till al-dente with complete flavours and aromatic hint.
In conjunction with Parents Day, Brotzeit offers you with their signature platter. Say thanks to your mum and dad the whole month of May and June and indulge with their signature dish all in one. Indulge in their signature pork knuckle, a loaded schnitzel, nürnberger & spicy chicken sausages, along with sides of garden veggies, fries & mashed potatoes. It is only priced at RM 195 nett per set.
There is also a Dinner Specials menu, which is available daily from 6pm. We had the pork fillets on rosti (RM33), which comes with a delicious black peppercorn cream sauce. The rosti (Swiss shredded potato) is thin and crispy, topped with bacon.
Congee with two dishes from Category B - choy sum and two braised hard boiled egg at MYR 11.90++ (MYR 13.209 nett). I will always order congee here because I like this type of congee instead of those very smooth congee. Braised hard boiled eggs are a must for me.
Beef tendon wanton noodles in soup with extra beef stew gravy. Two sui gao are underneath the noodles. I ate one sui gao and can taste the peanut taste in it as mentioned in the menu that peanut is used in the fillings of the sui gao. Tasty!
The braised beef briskets and tendons look messy but taste fine. We could not finish them so we took the balance home in our own container.
I’m always grateful to find restaurants at Mid Valley Megamall that serves food that actually excites me. Antipodean’s extensive menu has tons of things that I would be happy to eat. As long as it exists here at the mall, I will absolutely be back at Antipodean Cafe to try more of their food.
The size of the lamb patty is disappointingly small compared to the bun, but it is very flavourful. Our choice of medium doneness resulted in an incredibly juicy patty that was dripping before we even took a bite. For a cafe, this is a great tasting burger.
Big Breakfast with Bacon at MYR 26++ (MYR 30.16 nett). The scrambled eggs are very creamy so both of us cannot finish them and I had to keep them for another day.
Abundance of mushroom in above dish, yumm
We also ordered a snack of boneless chicken pieces with Honey BBQ marinate at MYR 20.95++ (MYR 24.30 nett). I like the taste of the 4 raw celery sticks that are served with the chicken. They are very crunchy too.
My favourite salad is in Chilli’s – Santa Fe Chicken salad (RM32.60). Once i awhile, i like to order this, a side of fries, and bottomless ice lemon tea, and of course sharing it with someone, the salad portion is huge… So good… Grilled chile-rubbed chicken breast, house-made pico de gallo, fresh diced avocado, cilantro, crispy tortilla strips with house-made Ranch dressing & a drizzle of spicy Santa Fe sauce.
What do We Like about Kiku Zakura, Mid Valley Megamall? -Fresh sashimi, quality foods in big portion
The Seafood Teppanyaki was well-grilled, drizzled with enough sauce to also eat with the vegetable sides.
I ordered the salmon don instead at MYR 29+ (MYR 31.90 nett) from the ala carte menu which has a slightly bigger slice of salmon as compared to the salmon bento set lunch.
This is a plate of slices of braised pigs' ear/s because I do not know how many ears are in this plate. That does sound awful doesn't it, to be eating ears. I tried a slice, it was crunchy but soft on the outside and the taste is of the gravy it was braised in so I believe people eat pigs' ears for the texture and not the taste.
The rice with beef brisket and white radish at MYR 15.85++ (10% service charge and 6% SST = MYR 18.39 nett) is tasty. There are 2 pieces of beef briskets, 1 piece of beef tendon, 3 pieces of white radish, 2 pieces of nai pak vege and lots of rice - the rice grains are plump and fleshy.
Ala carte menu - 3 drumsticks cost MYR 15+ 6% SST = MYR 15.90 nett
We ordered the 6 pcs wings combo (RM20.90), which comes with fries and drink as well as 3 pcs chicken drumstick (RM15.90). We had the wings with soy garlic glaze, and for the drumsticks, we had a mix of soy and hot. The wings were very tasty - crispy skin, with nice flavour on the meat. Hubby enjoyed the drumsticks too, juicy and meaty. We went for seaweed fries, which was nice and crispy too. We would definitely come back the next time we have craving for chicken wings.
Amarin is owned by the same company as Absolute Thai, but the prices are more expensive at Amarin. Even though we destroyed our tongues with that super hot stir-fried duck, we enjoyed the food at Amarin Heavenly Thai. Eating here is definitely an indulgence, but we would come here again.
It was a perfect dinner for us. I was so regretted for having my dinner somewhere else before accompany my sister to the Thai restaurant for dinner. If not, I should have ordered their Thai Basil Chicken here. Second visit? A big YES!! Everything was good from the service to the foods. Thumbs up!!
Red curry [Pork (RM19.80)/ Seafood (RM23.80)] If you adore hot and spicy food, this dish is not to be missed. There's just something so unique about Thai's red coconut, which sits on the sweeter side in comparison to Malaysian curry, but delicious in their very own distinct way. This curry is ideal to be eaten with rice, its thick and savoury broth would make you engulf the rice in no time. We opted for pork, and they were pretty fresh and came in decent amount. Basically their curry is on par with most of the Thai food chains out there, but are more reasonably priced. So the next time you're craving for Thai curry but not ready to burn a hole in your wallet, this place is definitely your go to.
I can't believe that for lunch, I only had this bowl of Red Ruby dessert at Tiffin's, Midvalley Mall. It was just ok, nothing to go back for.
To finish off our Thai dining experience, we tried the Seafood Tom Yum (RM28.80). The soup had a little bit of heat but is not overly spicy. A small plate of chopped chillies is placed on the side for customers to put it according to their preferred level of spiciness. Needless to say we dumped it all. If you like spicy food like us, you will probably like the hints of spicy kick in this dish.
My conclusion: Jamaica Blue offers decent food at a competitive price. Their coffee is simply one of the best especially their signature blend coffee and the price point is definitely cheaper than those mainstream brand like 'S' and 'TCB'. Other than Mid Valley, they have four more branches in Klang Valley, one in Seremban, one in Johor Bahru and one in Kuching, Sarawak.
This hot drink is a hot chocolate as it is using white chocolate case and adding a hit of blue curacao syrup to give it a vibrant colour. So that's why it is blue Latte. Once I taste it, it is so sweet. In my opinion, it is very suitable for those people who love sweet and it will make you smile and happy always. What is the best feeling is to enjoy the best coffee with a good companion or your loved one.
Chai Latte (M) was superb. I was trying it for the very first time and I would say that I loved it. Must try for Chai Latte lovers. It has rich chai taste and the right balance of both milk and chai. Yum!! Chai Latte (M) @ RM 15.20
Hubby had the Traditional Banh Mi (RM12.90), a crusty French-style baguette filled with pork liver pate, roasted pork, pork ear terrine, meatloaf, coriander and pickled vegetables. Totally satisfying.
Dried Pork Noodles at MYR 15.90++ (MYR 18.45 nett after 10% service charge and 6% SST). The noodles are those narrow translucent and springy kway teow/hor fun. There are two quail eggs and fresh prawns which I like. The large amount of herbs and garlic chives (koo chye) gave this dish a strong "green" taste but in a nutshell, I find this dish quite tasty and would only eat it if there is someone to share it with me because of its big portion.
Pumpkin fried rice with a new look and more ingredients such as broccoli and crackers but less cubes of pumpkin at MYR 15.80 nett. Won't order this next time because I prefer more cubes of pumpkin.
My lunch - assam laksa at MYR 12.90 nett. The broth is very tasty I must say - full of various spices which I cannot identify. My mouth does not feel that it is spicy but my stomach was burning when I finished eating this dish.
As I don't think I have ordered this Brown Rice with Pumpkin dish before, I had it this time at MYR 12.90 nett. The Brown Rice turned out to be fried rice with organic vegetarian soy sauce which is quite fragrant. As the rice has been stir fried with soy sauce, I could not tell whether it is Brown Rice as stated on the menu or not. With the soy sauce I find the rice to be very flavourful. I would prefer it to be just plain Brown Rice with more cubes of pumpkin and more vegetables on the side. Nevertheless I may have this dish again should my friend decides to eat here next time.
Asam Honey Chicken - MYR 6 nett per piece on average. It tastes like sweet and sour chicken so it is quite tasty.
Each RM 5.50 Crunchy Deals comes with a main meal accompanied by one drink. You can take your pick from not one but four choices of Combo Set offered such as their signature Fried Chicken, Classic Burger, Tender Wrap and Porridge.
Moving next, we had the Christmas-on-Fire Spaghetti with Turkey Meatballs (RM32). The meatballs are made from turkey and then it is then fried till crispy perfection and topped together with the freid garlic and chily. The al-dente pasta paired with the boucy juicy meatballs were just good and whats more with the kick of spiciness that comes with it.
One of our favorite dishes from their festive menu is the Tom Ka Rice with Sun-Dried Beef Strip and Som Tam (RM36). The beef strips are first marinated, hung out to air-dry, then deep fried and is served with a tangy, spicy tomato jaew sauce. It's like beef jerky but meatier, slightly chewy and absolutely delicious. This also comes with a green papaya salad (som tam) and aromatic Thai-style galangal rice pilaf cooked in coconut milk.
Greyhound Famous Fried Chicken Wings RM18 Greyhound Famous Fried Chicken Wings , one of our favourite Thai street snacks. Thai chicken wings appear to be drier and smaller in size but it is amazingly good with the extra crispy, golden brown outer layer laced with umami-ness of fish sauce, and tender meat locked with juiciness.
Hokkaido Milk Ice Cream at 50% off so after this discount, the price is MYR 4.45++ (10% service charge and 6% SST = MYR 5.16 nett). This ice cream is truly very milky so for those people who cannot stand the taste of dairy, please stay away.
Nasi Lemak Ayam Goreng Berempah (ala carte price is MYR 18.90++) promotion with a glass of cold watermelon juice (ala carte price is MYR 13.90++) at MYR 15.90++ (10% service charge and 6% SST = MYR 18.45 nett). So it is a savings of MYR 16.90++ which means this is good value for money. The deep fried whole chicken leg is tasty!
Cinnamon Raisin Roll (MYR 3.5+ 6% sst = MYR 3.71 nett) from Tokyo Secret, Midvalley Mall. For those who like the taste of cinnamon, this bun is very delicious.
Top view. Mango Snowfetti from Snowflake, Midvalley Mall at MYR 33.90 nett. Mango ice shavings with jelly ai yu, sweet potatoes balls, taro balls, springy tapioca balls, and cubes of mango swimming in mango puree.
I ordered the Base Ice Mix with the lowest price which is Soya Ice Mix at MYR 9.60+ (MYR 10.20 nett) in which I selected the exact 3 toppings that I had before with Matcha Shaved Ice - actual Taro / Yam as the premium topping and for the two classic toppings, peanuts and red bean. Previously with the Matcha Shaved Ice, I did not like that there is a slight soya taste in the Matcha Ice but surprisingly I am fine with the soya taste when it is purely soya shaved ice.
My bowl of Customised Matcha Ice Mix at MYR 12.50+ (MYR 13.25 nett) in which I selected Matcha Shaved Ice as the Base, actual Taro / Yam as the premium topping and for the two classic toppings, peanuts and red bean. The shaved ice does have a nice green tea taste but yet I can detect another taste which I think is the taste of soy beans which somehow interferes with the taste of matcha so I can't say that I have found the replacement for my favourite green tea ice from Nana Green Tea
I accompany my friends who wanted to eat lunch at Kim Gary, Midvalley Mall. I ordered a set lunch of beef steak pasta with black pepper sauce at MYR 14.90+ (10% service tax = MYR 16.40 nett) which included soup and drink. I kept half of the pasta for dinner but ate all the steak as the beef steak is just two thin slices of beef marinated in black pepper sauce. I left most of the sauce uneaten.
When we walked out of the restaurant, we noticed that there was a long queue waiting to get in as always. I think there is always a long queue because the price for the sets is quite good and there are many lunch set choices but as the food is too flavouful for me, I seldom eat here unless my friends wanted to have their meals here.
